Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 24, 2018

As staffers drain from the White House and the bulk of President Donald Trump's most trusted advisers depart, Trump is growing increasingly lonely and mistrustful of those remaining, according to a Tuesday New York Times report. "The Bushies in the White House are out to get me," Trump reportedly said about staff holdovers from the Bush administration. He is also so devoid of human contact that he's eager to spar with reporters even as he slanders the profession daily, according to the Times. The tides do not seem to be changing, either, as rumors fly about a chunk of significant White House officials who are eyeing the exits. Per the New York Times, that list includes Chief of Staff John Kelly, White House Counsel Don McGahn, Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah and Social Media Director Dan Scavino.

I hope they nail them the nearest wall.

It ain't paranoia if it's true. Chances are they're all going to jump off this garbage scow as soon as they can and definitely before the mid-terms. They can read the graffiti on the wall as well as anybody else.

Ask for shaved next time. You won't have to deal with attacking Bushies.

Can someone name a president, in their lifetime, who faced more opposition from the party they represent, than this dude has? Opposition during the primary, after he won the party nomination, and well into his presidency, from the established right, I've not seen come close to the level of what he's had to deal with, in my life or from either side.

If it is paranoia, I'd say there's reason for it.

Trump is always the victim, just like his supporters are.
Snowflakes, all of them!

Maybe it's because Trump is traitorous POS?!?!

IMHO his party hasn't stood up to him enough, the only ones that consistently call him out are former reps or key PAST figures of the GOP, like Steve Schmidt, George Will, Michael Steele, etc etc etc ....

The current Republican Party is complicit in Trumps evil and illegal actions as are the current Democratic Party to a lesser degree IMHO.

So why did Republican primary voters fall into line so easily?

Says allot about the mindset of right-wing activists and primary voters who wanted a candidate like Trump to actually follow-thru on the GOP's decades long hateful rhetoric directed at minorities and immigrants.

Are you pretending he hasn't brought that on himself by being a lying, narcissistic racist with no political skill other than acting like a 2nd grader? Not to mention his potentially treasonous means of becoming president in the first place? If anything both parties have been too soft on this POS.

Does Trump not deserve opposition? He's always been a narcissistic POS. He's only a leader in the eyes of a chud.

I see no one, as of yet anyway, has an answer to the only question I asked.

Just more of the same blah, blah, blah. It is a very simple question.

I'm game, no. I don't think any American political party has had to deal with a leader that has no idea how politics works before.

Why should we be impressed with your question?

The Republicans who opposed Trump were old school traditional establishment Republicans (backed by their GOP donors) who ran the party and never wanted to relinquish control.

All othere Republicans [pro-business, evangelical, right-wing ideologues, old Reagan Democrats aka: white working males] rolled over like the wet noodle weaklings that they always were.

The 115th United States Congress, majority GOP in both chambers, has consistently given "this dude" every deference in spite of his egregious behavior. Congressional lapdogs are doing everything they can to try to protect "this dude."

You're an imbecile if you think "this dude" has face any opposition, especially opposition where it would count: the United States Congress.

Donald's no GOTP and is entitled to no help from them.

And he's been treated with kid gloves so far, much more gentle than he deserves.

Take that back. To insult President Dwayne Elizando Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho by comparing him to Trump is the lowest of the low.

Nixon was impeached by his own party.

Yes I can. Obama. passive aggressive seeming support from the democrats. a good example would be the democrat acquiescence to mcConnel on the supreme court nomination. that was obvious and unforgivable. but in all fairness to the democrat leadership...he is black

9mm,

With a couple of exceptions the Republican Party has become the Party of Trump. In early election primaries Republicans who have opposed him lost. The rest are running scarred.

Democrats and everybody with a conscience, two distinct groups mind you, but the later group includes nearly everybody on the planet earth except Putin and Duterte, are horrified by the ignorance about our Government and moral depravity and dictatorial behavior of the Donald. He pretended to be a great negotiator but has failed to negotiate anything except pulling out of the Paris and Iran Agreements. Both these moves have horrified our traditional allies.

On FOX everything Trump does is golden, even when its the same thing Obama did that they hated. Their criticism of Obama was relentless and entirely fictitious. The Israeli lobby (AIPAC), Jeff Sessions and Mitch McConnell used all their majority powers to prevent Obama from governing, including denying him a SCOTUS appointment. Appointments have been occasionally denied by Congress in the past, but never denied a hearing. McConnell refused to hold a hearing because he knew Garland would be approved.

So your basic premise is nonsense. MSNBC and CNN have been extremely critical of Trump. You might compare it to FOX's criticism of Obama, except there is a strong factual basis in the first two that FOX feels no need to adhere to. Still, partisanship in DC has been growing steadily over the last 40 years. Not being able to focus on a common enemy contributes to this problem. Lobbyist money drives everything in DC, its the only thing Democrats, Republicans and Trump actually care about.

FOX, Trump and the Republicans are pathological liars. This is a much bigger problem for our country than all the criticism of Trump.

Until someone can drive a wedge between trump and his base, that's how it will stay.

Okay. Let me be clear if I haven't been before. I stopped watching all cable & local news, as well as listening to a.m talk shows, shoot, I even 'deleted' my facebook account all between 10-13 years ago.

That you would use any of these cable 'news' networks to attempt making any point regarding any topic, makes me wanna puke. And that's not trying to be a smart a**....

Hey, if the thread is here tomorrow I may pick this back up, or feel free to remind me of it. Yeah....nite.

What are you even basing that strategy on? The DNC needs to worry more about mobilizing it's own base.

Everything depends on November now. That is why trump wants to wait until AFTER the elections to deal with immigration. Democrats are not going ever support his hateful agenda. If the blue wave materializes in November then Trump and his Gang of Deplorables is in big trouble.

Trump hates bushes, that's why he spies on naked children at beauty pageants.
